big data, AI, deep learning - how it all fits into your digital strategy

Lecture / talk | -

This event is for you...: - if you hear everyone talking about how artificial intelligence will replace humans, but you still can't get a useful answer out of Siri; - If your colleagues always talk "big data", but your enterprise can't make big data bring big insights; - if a computer mimicking the workings of your brain sounds difficult to grasp; - if a computer learning chess on its own in 4 hours and beating previous champion makes you feel a slow learner.

This event will be co-hosted with the Geneva Bots and Artificial Intelligence meetup.

Here are our topics and speakers:

Use Big Data to Extract Business Insights and Value

Sometimes we feel like there is not enough data at our disposal. But the contrary can also cause a problem: how do you make sense or large amounts of data? Jan will explain how artificial intelligence helps makes sense of large quantities of data, through an example of a food startup.

He has built up three startups (two in finance and one industrial) and holds a PhD and multiple economics degrees.

What is Deep Learning and where are the limits of AI?

Prepare to be amazed!
